Lace and pearls

I wouldn’t normally consider myself to be a “lace and pearls” kind of girl…but then, it’s all in the styling, isn’t it?!

Faded denim skinnies, and my chunky sweater from Forever 21 (remember seeing it here before?) layered over my lacey, long-sleeved tee; and suddenly my look isn’t so much “lady who lunches,” but more like “let’s grab a bite and a drink at the pub!!”

To be honest, I should have layered a jacket or coat over this look as well…when my husband and I first headed out, the weather felt pretty mild; but by the time we arrived at our destination a nasty wind had kicked up – and man! – was it cold!!  We kept jumping back into the car to warm up between photos!!

I guess I should know better…winter in Vancouver is nothing if not unpredictable!!

And please remember, dear readers – I am visiting internet “no-man’s-land” this week, so I can only check in periodically!!

    What an adorable look! The lace top peeking out from under the sweater is so cute! Love the smile in the last pic too!

      Hello dear Dawn!! Thank you SO much for visiting, even though I've been away this whole week!! I had a wonderful time with my parents, despite the fact that we were stuck in the house most of the time because of the deep-freeze Toronto has been having! I have missed you, though…and am looking forward to being "in the loop" again!! XO

    Wow I really love this look, dear Monika. Especially the shoes and the clutch. But all together is perfect – and I think – I come to visit you and your closet. ๐Ÿ™‚ This Jeans is also very special. You are really right, it's all in the styling and I don't know but I would go out for lunch with you and also to have a beer in the pub. I hope you feel well?
    Conny xoxo

      My dear Conny…I have really missed you!! I had such a great visit with my mom and dad (they always spoil me so much!) but now I am looking forward to "catching up"…and showing off my new purchases!! Thankfully – despite the cold weather in Toronto! – my mom and I still managed to fit in an afternoon of shopping!! Wait until you see the new shoes I came home with!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
